How do structural approaches, such as segmented labor market theory, explain the international labor migration, for example from Mexico to the United States?
- 1. Cause:
- -Demand for immigrant labor in advanced industrial economies that have a segmented labor market
- 2. Segmented labor market:
- -Primary sector: Capital incentive, skilled, high paying jobs with good benefits
- -Secondary sector: Labor intensive, unskilled, low paying jobs with poor benefits, employers turn to immigrant labor because native workers don't like the type of work
